Laboratory of Aerodynamics was founded in 1933.

###### Theoretical studies in the laboratory of aerodynamics

- Physical and chemical aerodynamics
- Flows of rarefied and dense gas mixtures
- Flows of gas-solids suspensions and some problems of fluidization
- The theory of probability processes and their applications in aerodynamics

(Rice series, Markov processes, roughness) - The theory of local interaction in rarefied gas dynamics
- Nonlinear dynamics

###### Measurements

- Determination of aerodynamic forces acting on the body in the air stream
- Surface pressure measurements
- Local velocity measurements near the bodies in the air stream

###### Two subsonic wind tunnels:

**AT-12**

Open working section 1.5 m

Free-stream velocity 0-40 m/s**AT-11**

Open working section 2.25 m

Free-stream velocity 0-70 m/s

###### Applied engineering methods

- Definitions of wind loads on buildings and structures
- Measurements of aerodynamic coefficients of trains, lorries
- Prediction of wind speeds at pedestrian levels around buildings
- Investigation of oscillations of the body suspended under the helicopter
- Selection of chimney, wind turbines places
